I haven't fed him yet this morning so we'll see. I feed Aqueon Betta Food (pellets) and I have never had a problem in the past. I don't really have an alternative because he doesn't like bloodoworms, he spits those up to! Could there be something wrong? Sorry I didn't post this in the disease section because it isnt't really an emergency. Thanks!
The same thing happened with my fish, Silver. He would spit up everything
, so I crushed his pellets and he didn't really spit them up.
Dante spits his up too... I think he is softening them or something. He gets two in his mouth, grabs for three and spits em' up, but eventually he eats all three.
And Royal is a complete pig and attacks the food... he never spits them up!
All I can suggest is crushing the pellets or trying a different food.
